Garcia's death was one of my earliest memories. Dad came home from work heavily bummed, I think he was crying, and he put on some dead CD (Without A Net i think, but I'm not sure why I think that) and told me what had happened. I don't think I knew who the dead were at that point. Then I didn't actually really start living and breathing the music until college.

It's strange turning 21; it seems kind of a weird number for everybody to get so worked up about, probably more to me since I don't drink anymore anyway. It's also going to be weird because it's fall break here, and barely anyone is around, so it's just going to be my and my grandma. She's decidedly _not_ of the cheek-pulling variety, she's a sassy British woman and she's actually really engaging, if a little (ahem) forward. Don't think I've ever visited her by myself before, so this should be interesting. All my other grandparents have passed, so I'm trying to bond with this one as much as I can these days.

Not sure what show to grab for the drive out to Cambridge, it's roughly four hours away, so I might go for a couple '68s... hmmm...
